The Duster’s running costs are lower than average for an SUV. Fuel economy is good across the range, with the mid-spec TCe 130 petrol engine returning a claimed 42.8mpg, while the Blue DCi 115 diesel boasts an impressively economical 57.7mpg. On a more fundamental level, the Dacia’s lease rates are also very competitive, which means you get a lot of car for the money.
For those looking to reduce fuel bills further, the bi-fuel TCe 100 engine is an interesting proposition. This can run on normal petrol or on liquified petroleum gas (LPG). The latter isn’t as widely available as petrol or diesel, but it’s substantially cheaper and can be filled up in much the same way at a conventional filling station.
